Today, 23 APR 2021, I was running Launchbox 11.9 without issues and allowed Launchbox to update to current version. Norton 360 flagged Launchbox new version as having the Heur,AdvML.B virus. How do I get a clean version so I can run Launchbox?

It's a False positive like 1,000's of files in the emulation scene.

Just set an exclusion or even better an exclusion for your entire setup.

 Yeah there is no virus, that would be a pretty bad business decision if we were selling a product that infected users systems with a virus.

This is why programs like Norton are junk and a waste of money, they flag all sorts of legitimate programs as virus's, likely because they are badly coded, or more nefariously its how they "trick" you into thinking they are working well. Ever heard the story of the boy who cried wolf??
